      As mentioned above, Joe; it is a Chrysler. Probably a 1958 Windsor or Saratoga, but difficult to tell from what we can see of it. BP

        Boy I really messed up this time. Though the grill looks similar to the '58 Studebaker those headlights definitely are those of a Chrysler. Sorry folks.

            No need to apologize. An easy "first glance" mistake. The main difference is that Chrysler planned their dual headlights. Studebaker's look like they were a added as a last minute bolt on bad idea.

                • Wow, Joe; that looks like a rare 1956 Sky Hawk in front of Brody's; 'neat picture.

                  Hey, no need to apologize for the Chrysler ID error in 3852: I, among 'most everyone else, greatly appreciate your efforts digging up and posting these old photos. They are really cool, so don't back down. BP

                    Thanks, Bob. I enjoy hunting down old photos, particularly Studebaker ones, so I will be posting as usual (hopefully without mistakes)

                    • That Plymouth in post #3861 is NOT your typical taxicab! The top-line model with the chrome side trim and whitewalls are definitely uncommon on taxis of that era.
